Form & Verdict

Kelso bumper winner (2m, soft) early in 2020 who appreciated the return to a left-handed track when winning easily by 22l at Chepstow (2m, good to soft) last month; possible to pick holes in the form with the odds-on favourite blowing out, but he could hardly have done much more and remains open to further improvement now upped in trip.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who made the perfect start for this yard when making all to win by 11l at Market Rasen (2m5f, soft) in March, but could only manage third of six under his penalty over C&D (soft) last month; may have to settle for minor honours again.

Won on rules/hurdle debut here (2m4f, soft) in March and, although beaten under a penalty the next twice (2m4f, soft), those were still respectable runs; this very lightly raced point winner (3m, good to yielding) is open to improvement now over fences on his handicap debut; firmly in calculations.

Promising fourth of ten on his Worcester bumper debut (2m, soft) in October 2021, but not seen again until fifth of ten on hurdles debut at Wincanton (1m7f, good to soft) last month; longer trip should suit on pedigree and he remains unexposed, but improvement is required.

All three starts here, finishing well held in a bumper (2m heavy) and on hurdles debut (2m, soft) in January, but much better upped to this trip when second of 13 (good) in March; rain may pose a question, but still respected given that he seems to be progressing.

Had a near miss over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November but he's not gone on from that and was a remote fourth here (2m, heavy) last month; that took his hurdling record to 0-8 and he needs this switch to fences to reinvigorate him; tongue-tie added.
